Make a Difference This Mothers Day!

If your Mom is like my Mom she probably has everything.  Not exactly everything but as far as Mother's Day or birthdays go there isn't something she is dying to have.  Here in the US we live in a culture where take this kind of thing for granted.  It isn't until I go without that I realized how easy my life is and how comfortable I am.  As I start thinking about this upcoming Mother's Day it takes me back to when I became a mother!  It's been 9 months but it still feels like yesterday.  It took twelve hours from the time my water broke to the time we saw sweet Stafford for the first time.  In between those momentous events I enjoyed a bowl of cereal, an epidural and the Food Network as I labored.


One of my bloggy friends Adriel has challenged her readers to step outside their world and take a look at childbirth on the opposite side of the world.  You can read the entire post here.  Sadly my experience with childbirth isn't the norm all over the world.  In fact according to the World Health Organization a potential mommy is dying every minute somewhere in the world due to childbirth and pregnancy complications. To help combat this terrible reality Adriel is challenging bloggers and readers to take action!!
